Process requirements typically define the drive selection. A successful project looks beyond the process and considers future products, new technologies available and budget limitations. We have deep experience with variety of these motion sources and can balance the factors to deliver success consistently to your project.
Within any machine we can combine other technologies to provide additional flexibility in automated control system
Pneumatic cylinders and actuators use compressed air as a modular and discrete source of motion. These are traditionally used for high speeds, and offer a cost-effective solution for point-to-point movements and sequential events. The combination of discrete motion and a control system can provide significant intelligence on the work to be done and allow easy process maintenance.
Hydraulic cylinders and actuators use oil as a source of motion. These are traditionally used for medium and low speeds, and offer a cost-effective solution for point-to-point movements and sequential events. The combination of discrete motion and a control system can accurate motion control with high accuracy.
Servo motors provide a highly-controlled source of motion. The ability to program speed, position, acceleration, etc., gives these systems great flexibility. They are traditionally used for high speed, variable and coordinated motion. Servo motors offer a high degree of intelligence and demand a more complex control system.
Our solutions easily integrate these motion technologies on the complete process automation equipment and apply them as necessary. This means that a machine controlled by PLC can integrate hydraulic, pneumatic, servo actuator mechanisms as part of a process and different technologies can work together to provide better solutions. Other than that controls like PID, Temperature, pressure, LVDT, load cells, RPM, can be integrated together for closed loop monitoring of the complete process.
